My friends in Schiffsratten invited me to visit their club house, after they noticed, I had become their neighbor. Eventually I decided to check out Theorietrainings at Monday. Even if my German skills are quite limited, I wanted to stay for a while in their training and listen to Jeremia Spotter lecturing. Typical German precision was easily visible in all details.
After the training, it was time to put the new skills into practise by having a race. The boat used was Shelly, which is a very basic and simple vessel to sail, but still you need to understand the basics. Since I didn’t own a Shelly, Jeremia and Silber showed me a place, where to get one for free.
I invited my friend, Elmarsia, to participate to the race with me. She had never sailed before and was glad to try. After I noticed, that Shelly had a center board and that the boat ran really slow on tailwind, I started to get touch on it. There was also some problems with the world map, that made navigation quite challenging.
Eventually I crossed the finish line, yay!
